A basic t-shirt dress is always necessary! Throw it under a shacket, add a sneaker and you are ready for the day! A- frame style so it is going to tailor in a little bit at the midsection, and then flow out in the hips.
These dresses do run big! Charlsi is wearing a small with plenty of room, and she is usually a medium/large dress. We would recommend sizing down at least 1 size. You are still going to get a flowy fit.
Note from Charlsi: If you are taller, these are great to layer with because of the extra room! The length is also appropriate which is usually a struggle for me :)
